Today I'm sharing from the depths of my heart on when Mother's Day hurts. #miscarriage   #grief   #MothersDay  
Much of my life, I have known this to the core of who I am. In fact, this knowledge is foundational to who I am. If you read my novels, you will see that ultimately they come back to this point. That God is with us.

Want to write #ChristianFiction ? Come to #ACFW2016  -- I credit ACFW with my success as a published author.
If you know anything about my writing, then you know that I attribute the fact that I have more than 20 books out with more in the works to ACFW and its conference. I have met all of the editors that I work with at the conference and have gained invaluable instruction on writing, marketing, and so much more.
